About Book

Book Description
Edith Wharton was born and bred to be a society wife, but in that she was a dismal failure: her marriage was pure misery, and in time the Whartons parted. As a writer, though, she was an incredible success -- she had real insight into the people around her, and she could tell of them beautifully. She published her first story in 1889, and numerous books in the years that followed.

Included in this collection of Edith Wharton's stories are "The Muse's Tragedy," "A Journey," "The Pelican," "Souls Belated," "A Coward," "The Twilight of the God," "A Cup of Cold Water," and "The Portrait."

Download Description
The Carstyle house stood but a few yards back from the brick-paved Millbrook street, and the garden was a very small place, unless measured, as Mrs. Carstyle probably intended that it should be, by the extent of her daughter's charms. These were so considerable that Vibart walked back and forward half a dozen times between the porch and the gate, before he discovered the limitations of the Carstyle domain. It was not till Irene had accused him of being sarcastic and had confided in him that "the girls" were furious with her for letting him talk to her so long at his aunt's garden-party, that he awoke to the exiguity of his surroundings.
